About me

Therapy during Coronavirus:

In the light of government advice on social distancing and non-essential travel, I'm currently working by remote therapy sessions only - either by video or telephone. On booking an appointment I'll send you full details of how this works.

People often find the same problems happening again and again - even those who have been in therapy before. These patterns are rarely random and I believe that if we explore their causes, we will find the way to positive and long-lasting change.


Working with individuals and couples, I use a wide range of therapies rather than work from a fixed approach. I believe that this freedom allows my clients and I the greatest opportunities for positive change.

You may not even know what is wrong, just that something doesn't feel right, and that you want to talk this through.

My professional training, therapeutic and life experience means I can offer you an impartial ear, the ability to examine issues from a fresh angle and a calm, neutral, non-judgemental environment.

UKCP

UK Council for Psychotherapy

The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority.

As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.

UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
